Bovine Pulmonary Artery Endothelial Cells (BPAE Line)|
BPAE cells are positive for angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), an enzyme that is intricately involved in the maintenance of blood pressure and volume. Due to this fact, BPAE cells are often utilized in hypertension research as well as studies of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

ASSIGNMENTS --- Assignment topics will be shown here as the course progresses.|
The guide is simply a guide, an example; how your eventual report is made is completely up to you.
The guide shows section numbering; you can certainly number sections if you wish, it is up to you. It is meant to be a mental guide for planning your report.
The content of the report including figures and references should be about 4xA4 sides of paper (ie 2 sheets of paper using both sides).
If you wish to include the title page as a separate sheet it is OK.
My aim is to minimise the amount of work for you for each assignment so that you are not overworked, given that you have other courses to study.
The guide is actually meant for the Winter term Foundation in Biology class, so for introductory Biology it is simply a reference point.
